Looks like the LVM developers foresaw my brainfart and left the first
sector of the disk for me to bugger up without buggering up LVM.  :-)

Hrm.  Do you really mean "first" there or second, which is sector 1 if
you start counting with 0?

Yes, this looks so.

I don't think I do:

# pvdisplay /dev/sda
  --- Physical volume ---
  PV Name               /dev/sda
  VG Name               datavol
  PV Size               931.51 GB / not usable 1.71 MB
  Allocatable           yes 
  PE Size (KByte)       4096
  Total PE              238467
  Free PE               85356
  Allocated PE          153111
  PV UUID               C22uVB-4m26-5cvl-I11V-NXCm-mVNo-UTAXUH

But of course, I just want to get the opinion of the experts.

> I don't think you need something to repair the PV.

I don't think so either, but of course, do want to confirm my suspicion.

Thanx much for your insight.
